Online Outcome and Casemix Measures Training
AMHOCN now provides an opportunity for staff working in Australian public sector mental health services to undertake online training in the measures that make up the National Outcomes and Casemix Collection (NOCC).
For Child and Adolescent mental health workers, this includes the Health of the Nation Outcome Scales Child and Adolescent (HoNOSCA), the Childrens Global Assessment Scale (CGAS) and the Factors Influencing Health Status (FIHS).
For those working with Adults, this includes the Health of the Nation Outcomes Scales (HoNOS), the Life Skills Profile 16 (LSP) and the Focus of Care (FOC).
Those working with Older Persons can access training in the Health of the Nation Outcomes Scales 65+ (HoNOS65+), the Life Skills Profile 16 (LSP), the Focus of Care (FOC) and the Resource Utilisation Groups – Activities of Daily Living (RUG-ADL).
Online training involves:
- a review of the measures, including a review of the rating rules and special considerations when rating the measures;
- a practice rating the Health of the Nation Outcomes Scales measure appropriate to your needs; and
- the completion of a knowledge test.
If you complete all components of this training you will receive a certificate of satisfactory completion from AMHOCN.
